The Rural-Urban Divide in Europe (RUDE)

The project examines whether and how urban-rural residency is related to divides in legitimacy beliefs, social identities, perceptions of injustice and threat, political and social attitudes and political behavior of European citizens. It deals with shifting identities and their consequences for democratic governance and political representation and also examines the role of globalization.
